What are the recommended settings for the jukebox user ?

In order to get AmpJuke running in jukebox mode, it's recommended to have a specific user account created for that purpose.

...or use an existing user with the correct settings in order to make AmpJuke running in juekbox mode without any problems.


This FAQ-entry will outline the settings that should be set to meet the requirement for operating AmpJuke in jukebox mode.



Assume you have created a user account for the sole purpose of serving as the jukebox user (the username entered in the configuration of the jukebox), - here's what should be activated/enabled (and what shouldn't).

Everything referred to below is taken from the personal settings.



When a track is selected: Play it immediately (more here).


Use flash player to listen to music: Should be off (unchecked). More here.


Display what is being played: Should be off (unchekced). More here.


Automatic play : After last track is played: Should be ON (checked). This is important. More here.


Submit streamed tracks to It's a matter of taste/preference to have this on or off. If you leave this on (checked) together with a username and -password, every track played in jukebox mode will be submitted and show up on the page for the username. On (checked) of off (unchecked): It's your choice. More here.


Also avoid transcoding/downsampling. To be honest, I haven't tested that, - I guess there's a 50-50 chance it will work.


That's it! The settings mentioned above are the most important to check/verify for your "jukebox user".


Note that other personal settings such as theme, language, items/page etc.etc. are (still) personal settings that will be used for each user when he/she logs in.
